‘No part of the country is more distinguished by its sublimity’, William Wordsworth on the topic of the Lakes. Awarded UNESCO World Heritage status thanks to the status as England’s largest national park, outstanding beauty and deepest lakes, you’ll be glad to get lost in the peaceful valleys of the Lake District.
Visit the spots that inspired a wealth of English literacy; Dove Cottage home of poet William Wordsworth and Hill Top in Hawksmead where Beatrix Potter grew up. The way to make the most of the Lake District is to get out and explore at your own pace – and of course, we can point you in the right direction of our favourite trails.
Summer is both the best and the busiest time to come to the Lake District. It’s busy, but the nights are long making for balmy evenings by the water. The colours of Autumn are breathtaking if you can brave the cold you will be rewarded with a lack of crowds.
